Here is my last tryout : The KO Ketchup from Los Angeles ! (http://koketchup.com/) It calls itself the evolution of Ketchup ! :) It is not Ketchup, nor BBQ, it’s KO !
First impression : I loved the old school packaging and its thin bottle, who looks like a flask in fact! I am really into old school branding and packaging, and this one fits perfectly in this category.
I tried it with chicken, beef dips, and in a tortilla. I did not know what to think at the beginning concerning the taste : Sweet? Spicy? Barbecue flavored?
And in fact, it is all of these tastes and flavors in a single bottle. The KO ketchup mixed lots of 100% natural ingredients (which is very positive). Let me enumerate some : Balsamic vinegar, chipotle peppers, black pepper, CILANTRO !!!
We feel the peppers but not too much, and that’s good, because it is named Ketchup. I also felt some very small bits in it, as if there was garlic powder.
Really, it was a nice tryout and I would advise you to try it in a burger.
Let me share with you a description I noticed and liked on the website : “Beyond ketchup, beyond BBQ sauce, beyond your taste buds’ wildest dreams – K.O. Ketchup is the first step toward a more flavorful life.”
On their website, you have links to buy products online, and the list of stores they are in. (Only in California at the moment)
